It looks like Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will send another man to lethal injection, authorizing death in state sponsored murder. A 75-year-old man who's legally blind and requires a wheelchair will be put to death right after his birthday. He's old, feeble the punishment is cruel and unusual. Tuesday will be his last day barring action from the Supreme Court.
His lawyers are trying a new approach. They are using the issue of his age and illness as the reason not to execute him. The reason for his execution is he ordered three murders while in jail for on he committed personally. He's obviously not a nice man. He's been on death row for 23 years, going there in 1982.
The thing I don't understand is this. He's on death row for all these years. He had a heart attack last year. Why didn't they let him go then? I'm not an advocate of the death penalty. I think it's vile that society can do this to another human being. Even if the costs of all the appeals were zero, I still think it's an absolute evil and vile behavior. But regardless, He's been there an excessively long time. He's barely able to get to the place where needs to go to be executed. What's the reason at this point?
